Emagine Theatres is no longer looking to build a in St. Clair Shores, the company's founder and chairman confirmed Monday.
Paul A. Glantz, founder and chairman of Emagine Entertainment, Inc., told that his company was looking to build a 12-screen complex at the southeast corner of 12 Mile and Little Mack.
But factors including the size of the parcel, parking and an existing oil change business, led the company to terminate the option on the property, he said.
"That particular parcel did not end up working for us," Glantz said. "We remain highly focused on that market (southeast Macomb County)."
This is the second location Emagine has considered in the area and opted to not build. In May, officials in Grosse Pointe announced that Emagine Entertainment had withdrawn shopping district.
